Morning Musing Over Coffee - Hard Work

Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little ones well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves. ~ Dale Carnegie




All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
Proverbs 14:23

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
Colossians 3:23

The Walnut Acre Daily - Sleet!!! Really?!?!?

Our morning started with sleet. SLEET!!!! Spring is seriously teasing us this year. Thankfully the sleet didn't last long but the rest of the day has been gray and wet.

Austin usually takes care of the morning chores but this morning I took a turn at feeding, watering, gathering eggs . . .and taking pictures.



There were six pretty eggs this morning.  


The rabbits are looking good.



I get so much amusement from watching the pig enjoy her food. She's just such a . . . pig!


In between rain showers Mykalin picked grass for the animals to enjoy. The rabbits and chickens always like fresh green grass and even the pig will eat some.



I took these pictures yesterday when we went for a walk. This goat was so funny and reminded me how much I really want a goat.


The rest of the day I spent doing laundry, washing dishes, cleaning, cooking and writing. And I got papers printed to go with the books I'm planning to use next week on the mornings I go to my sister's. I also managed to sneak in as little nap this afternoon. 



Doug was busy all day too. He took trash to the landfill, helped our pastor take a refrigerator to someone who needed one, got feed from the feed store, and then worked in the garage the rest of the day. 

So even though it was gray, cold and wet today it was still a good day. And according to The Weather Channel after another rainy day tomorrow, next week should be mostly sunny and warm. Yay!!!!

You must weed your mind as you would weed your garden. ~ Terri Guillemets




“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

The Walnut Acre Daily - Thursday April 23, 2015



I love days like today when I get to be home all day long. I wouldn't want it every day but right now I have a nice balance of home and away from home days and I'm enjoying it. 

Today I stayed busy with making chicken and rice soup, schoolwork, six loads of laundry and writing.

This afternoon Austin worked several hours at my dad's. Then this evening Austin, Amanda and Michael were also down there for several hours. Doug was busy this evening working on a lawn mower and then later helping a boy scout with a welding project.

Here are just a few pictures from our day.
